Mr. Aaron Friedland on “Empowering access to education in the age of globalization”
“Currently 26.3 Million children do not attend school due to distance issues. There is extensive disparity between technology used by the villagers and the technology in classrooms. I have realized that experiential learning is crucial. Applying theoretical concepts to real life makes a huge difference.”

Founder and Executive Director of The Walking School Bus, an organization which aims to help students worldwide access education. His personal experiences in conjunction to his work as an Economic Analyst at UN Watch opened his eyes to myriad barriers to education including poverty, distance to school and lack of nutrition.
